Virtual Learning Platforms

In the past decade, it has been possible to sign up to different learning platforms in order to update or enlarge your knowledge about a certain topic as well as to start learning a new skill. 

According to Forbes “online learning has shown significant growth over the last decade, as the internet and education combine to provide people with the opportunity to gain new skills. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, online learning has become more centric in people’s lives.” The current pandemic pushed companies, schools, universities and individuals to opt for this method of learning and sharing. Nowadays platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, just to name a few, are used by billions around the world, whether is for work, learning, keep in touch with family and friends or for a hobby.


The advantages of this type of learning can be summarized in these main points:

  • Variety: There are thousands of courses at a distance of a click
  • Time: people can set up their own schedule
  • Pace: there is the possibility of going faster or slowly
  • Location: learn from the comfort of your home from providers all around the world
  • Cost: on general the cost tends to be lower, especially if having in account that there are no costs for commuting or time spent to go to a certain place


There are different types of platforms, but they can be divided into two main groups:

  • Open source: an open source platform is a type of platform that can be used free of charge. Usually, it is mandatory to do a registration.
  • Premium: as the name says, this kind of platform is accessible through the payment of a fee. This fee can be a monthly or annual subscription, or an amount paid every time that the platform is accessed. Compared to the open source, in this case, the user has usually access to more features and services. (There are platforms that have both options, free and premium).


One of the areas where these platforms are being used with great results is to learn languages. There are a great number of different platforms, where millions of people have signed up to learn and improve their language skills.
